About Iceland

With the name 'Iceland', most people think they know what Iceland is made of. However, once you arrive, you'll realise that this statement is a bit misleading. Iceland is known as the land of fire and ice, with towering volcanoes, hot springs, glaciers and waterfalls dominating the landscape.

Iceland is a country where nature dominates rather than people. The land is constantly in a state of flux, moving to and from as Mother Nature wants. Of course, this makes it the perfect destination for those looking to get off the beaten path and into a world where fire meets ice. Learn more about the Viking history of Iceland, soak in the natural hot springs or marvel at the volcanoes as you walk past - this is the country where every corner leads to something more memorable.

Here is what you need to know about Iceland, its geography, history, climate and people.
